ASUS's "Dual Touch Concept" unveiled in CeBIT 2009 had drawn much attention from visitors for its avant-garde dual-display looks. Regretfully, it was only a concept model and not for sale.

Today, Toshiba announced their "Libretto W100", a laptop quite similar to this "Dual Touch Concept". It has software keyboard using touchpanel and can be used both horizontally and vertically. A great choice for eBook reader.

As its name show, it's absolutely book size.

Seems like a game console.

W100 runs 2 hours on a regular battery and 4hours on a larger battery. Seems a bit short for modern laptop.
